CCSEM for Powder Metal Characterization and Contamination Identification

Post by:

Additive manufacturing (AM), also known as 3D printing, is quickly becoming an industry standard for product manufacturing in a variety of applications, including medical devices, aviation and aeronautics parts, and transportation. The powdered metals used in these products have introduced a wide range of questions for experts, who must determine whether the feedstock material is appropriate and sufficiently free of contamination […]

Supporting Superalloys – A Unique Approach to Powder Metal Cleanliness

Post by:

Superalloys are nickel-based or cobalt-based alloys that are resistant to high temperatures, perform better, are corrosion and oxidation resistant, and last longer than other metals. Superalloy parts are traditionally produced from powdered metals (PM) using subtractive manufacturing techniques. These parts are most often used in heavy industry or in areas having a corrosive environment, as […]
